Le petit bassin est un espace cônique musculoosseux comportant la portion inférieure de la cavité péritonéale surmontant l’espace endopelvien. Les viscères pelviens reçoivent leur vascularisation des parois latérales au sein de l’espace endopelvien, leur innervation dépend d’une double origine, abdominale et pelvienne. Les parois de cet espace abritent les nerfs somatiques et vaisseaux destinés aux parois de la partie inférieure du tronc et aux membres inférieurs. La connaissance pratique de cette anatomie peut être aidée par une approche constructive élaborant les parois et ensuite le contenu de cet espace. [less ▲]

The algae Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea (Sonder) was first observed along Corsican coasts in 2002 (Ruitton et al., 2005), and more recently in the Calvi Bay (northwestern Corsica) in 2008. Numerous works have studied the distribution of that invasive species and the factors driving its rapid expansion, as well as the resulting ecological impacts on native coastal communities (Klein and Verlaque, 2008). However, very little is known regarding C. racemosa biochemistry and its natural ability to concentrate trace elements (TEs). In the framework of the STARECAPMED project, this work therefore aimed to study the bioaccumulation and the compartmentalization of 19 TEs in this macroalgae. [less ▲]

Laminitis is a common and debilitating disease affecting horses and ponies. It often leads to the demise of the animal. Energy deficiency is suspected to entrain the disruption of the hemidesmosomes leading to the failure of the dermal-epidermal interface. The aim of this study was to measure the muscle mitochondrial function by high resolution respirometry. Muscle micro-biopsies were obtained from 11 horses affected by acute metabolic laminitis, 6 horses affected by acute laminitis resulting from a systemic inflammation response syndrome and 28 healthy horses distributed in 2 control groups: 17 horses with a body condition score [BSC, ranging from 0 (emaciated) to 5 (obese)] of 2 to 3 and 11 horses with a BSC of 4 to 5. During the acute phase of laminitis, a significant reduction of the muscle mitochondrial respiration was observed. The muscle mitochondrial dysfunction occurred independently of the etiology (metabolic disorder or systemic inflammation) leading to laminitis. The reduction of the oxidative phosphorylation and of the maximal respiratory capacity (after uncoupling) may induce depletion of the cell’s ATP content. If the same mitochondrial alteration occurs in the foot lamina, mitochondria targeting should be considered for the future, not only to better understand the physiopathology of the disease but also to maintain and to support the mitochondrial function before reaching the « mitochondrial dysfunction threshold » that may lead to the failure of the dermal-epidermal interface.

The Mediterranean seagrass Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile is regarded as a relevant indicator of bioavailable trace elements (TEs) since it efficiently and proportionally bioaccumulates these chemicals from its surrounding environment. Recent studies have further brought supplementary insights in our understanding of the processes driving TE kinetics within that species. But at a higher degree of organization, the distribution and flows of TEs between P. oceanica meadow components, i.e. seagrass shoots, epiphytes, associated algae and animals and detritus, have not been investigated yet. The present study therefore aims to propose a conceptualization model of P. oceanica meadows, regarded as the juxtaposition of the 5 separate components listed above exchanging flows of TEs between themselves and with their environment, i.e. water and sediment. This model can be drawn in energy circuit language. By writing such a model, one in essence is writing equations describing a system. To be relevant, its elaboration requires the compilation of a large amount of quantitative data. This conceptualization can thus be regarded as a collaborative innovation requiring scientists to fill the model through the continuous supplement of new data. In fine, this model will lead to the exact quantification of the role played by P. oceanica meadows in the coastal biogeochemistry of TEsin the Mediterranean. [less ▲]

Purpose: Successful downstaging of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) into the Milan criteria (MC) remains a controversial indication for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). In Belgium, successful downstaging of HCC is an accepted non-standard- ized exception (NSE) for liver allocation. This NSE group rep- resents a unique cohort to analyse if OLT can be safely offered to patients with those extended allocation criteria. The aim of this study is to compare the overall and recurrence free survival after cadaveric OLT between patients with successful downstaging (MILDOWN) and patients always inside the MC (MILIN) from all Belgian transplant centres. Methods: We ret- rospectively analysed all patients listed for OLT with HCC and underlying cirrhosis between 12/2006 and 12/2011 from all Belgian liver transplant centres. Successful downstaging was defined as bringing a patient who was outside the MC into the MC after locoregional therapy (LRT). Results: Overall 381 patients were listed in Belgium during the study period. Of these, 320 received OLT. 248 were MILIN, 62 were MIL- DOWN and 10 were transplanted outside MC. Downstaging treatment included transarterial chemoembolization (TACE; n=26), radiofrequency (RF; n=9), transarterial radioembolisa- tion (TARE; n=4), resection (n=3), percutaneous ethanol injec- tion (n=2) and a combination of the above-mentioned therapies in 18 cases. In the MILIN group 67.3% received locoregional therapy before transplantation, with no significant differences in the distribution of treatment type compared to the MIL- DOWN group. At listing there were no significant differences between the MILIN and MILDOWN group for age, gender and underlying liver disease. Median time on waiting list between the two groups was similar (120 days vs. 115.5 days). Overall survival at 1 year was not significantly different between MILIN and MILDOWN (87.1% vs. 79%; p=0.120). 1.6% of patients were lost to follow-up in both groups. Although not significant, recurrence free survival at 1 year tended to be higher in the MILIN group than in the MILDOWN group (83.9% vs. 74.2%; p=0.073). Conclusion: In this large Belgian multicentre cohort, overall and recurrence free survival at 1 year are not signifi- cantly different between patients who have been downstaged successfully and patients who were always inside the Milan criteria. However, a longer follow up period will define, if the trend of lower survival in the successfully downstaged group becomes significant. Factors associated with HCC recurrence have to be identified.

La méthodologie d’évaluation de la portance écologique du territoire a ensuite été paramétrée afin d'objectiver l’intérêt du territoire wallon du point de vue des pelouses calcaires. Il résulte de cette application un outil cartographique qui permet de discriminer les sites potentiels les plus efficaces pour la restauration de ces pelouses sur le plan écologique. Cet exercice démontre ainsi très concrètement l'utilité de la portance écologique en tant qu'aide à la décision pour orienter les dépenses de préservation de leur réseau écologique spécifique.

The goal of the project FloodLand is to investigate the complex interactions between landuse change and future flood risk. Landuse change is assumed to be mainly driven by population growth and socio-economic factors. It affects future flood risk by altering catchment hydrology as well as vulnerability in the floodplains; but the feedback effect of (the perception of) changes in flood hazard on landuse evolution is also considered. The research is based on a chain of modelling tools, which represent parts of the natural and human systems, including: landuse change modelling, transportation modelling as an onset for the estimation of indirect flood damage, continuous hydrological modelling (forced by precipitation and temperature data disturbed according to climate change scenarios), as well as efficient hydraulic modelling of inundation flow in the floodplains. Besides reproducing a broad spectrum of processes, the modelling approach spans over multiple scales, from the regional or catchment level down to the floodplain and building levels. This distinctive feature is reflected both within the individual models and through their combination involving fine-scale detailed analyses (or data) embedded within coarser models at a broader level.
